Cloud Adoption: RD Corporation Selects Globe Business G Suite


Globe Business, the enterprise information and communications technology (ICT) arm of Globe Telecom, enables RD Corporation (RD Corp), one of the largest, premier conglomerates in the Visayas and Mindanao region, with another cloud-based solution—G Suite for Business.

To date, RD Corp is Globe Business’ biggest G Suite client in the VisMin region with more than 900 licenses. With G Suite, RD Corp employees can use intuitive technology like Google+ Hangouts at work, plus they can create, share, and work on files with the whole team in real-time with Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, and store them all in the cloud with Google Drive.

“Our email prior to G Suite was an on-premise email system provided by a different solution vendor. The main reason why we transferred from our old provider to G Suite is reliability, plus the fact that it offers bigger storage and better collaboration tools,” said Ritche Rivera, Vice Chairman and Group EVP COO of RD Corporation. “We did a comparison of G Suite and other email solutions that could offer the same services. For us, G Suite came up the strongest due to its technology, functionality, and ease of use.”

“As a business partner, we redefine how businesses work—we go beyond functions, numbers, and performance. We help turn their passion and purpose into reality with the right technology, infrastructure, and know-how to transform people’s lives,” shared Globe Business Senior Advisor Mike Frausing

Frausing adds, “We thank RD Corp for their continued business partnership. Globe is a leader when it comes to innovation and we want to share what we know with our customers as we continuously look for solutions that address their business pain points.”

Powered by Google Cloud, G Suite allows users to communicate faster and more conveniently with Gmail. It provides storage for up to 30 GB of email per user, advanced spam filtering, lightning-fast message search, integrated text, and voice and multi-person video chat.

At the same time, employees can create and share project website and intranet pages without any programming skills or technical support through Google Sites, connect to the right people, ideas, and information with Google+, and manage business critical information with Google Vault retention, archiving, and eDiscovery tool.

RD Corporation is a local conglomerate based in General Santos City with 43 subsidiaries and 12 affiliates engaged in various industries in deep sea fishing, shipbuilding and repair, manufacturing, export marketing and distribution, aquaculture and processing, agribusiness, finance, realty, retail, and hotels and resorts.
